What is The Politician about?

The first season is set at the fictional Saint Sebastian High School in Santa Barbara, California. Payton Hobart (Ben Platt), who has dreamed of being elected President of the United States since childhood, is running for student body president against the popular and athletic River Barkley (David Corenswet). Payton, under the direction of his ambitious friends McAfee Westbrook (Laura Dreyfuss), James Sullivan (Theo Germaine), and Alice Charles (Julia Schlaepfer), chooses Infinity Jackson (Zoey Deutch), a cancer patient and victim of Munchausen by Proxy disorder, to be his vice-president. Meanwhile, River, under the direction of his girlfriend Astrid Sloan (Lucy Boynton), chooses Skye Leighton (Rahne Jones), a gender-nonconforming black classmate, to be his vice-president.
The second season is set in Albany, New York. Payton, now a student at New York University, is running for a seat in the New York State Senate against incumbent Majority Leader Dede Standish (Judith Light). Payton, under the direction of his former classmates and climate change activist Infinity Jackson, runs an ecocentric campaign. Standish, under the direction of her conniving campaign manager Hadassah Gold (Bette Midler), runs a more conservative campaign. Meanwhile, Payton's mother, Georgina Hobart (Gwyneth Paltrow), is running to be Governor of California.
